Question about Motorola Mobility Moto Q

1 Answer

My MotoQ 8 restarts even on the slighest touch on some keys on the keypad. It restarts almost every hour. The date goes back to year 2005 and the history of calls/message after that goes for a toss. I changed the battery, still the same problem persists. Any suggestions

My moto q classic is stuck in a flash mode it says. its a black screen that pops up saying, motorola flash mode bootloader version BOOT_C_03.08.00R_MPAP charger connected please connect the...


Your system software / firmware has become corrupted. You need to download and install replacement firmware for your phone. You need to choose the correct firmware for your exact model and service provider / carrier for it to work.

I wrote fixya tip on how to do this a few months ago, the links are below. But don't use the verizon firmware unless verizon is your carrier - get your carriers firmware from Motorola's MotoQ website.

Or, just take it into your service providers store and get them to do it.

I hope that helps.

Phone screen works then goes black


I can help you with your Motorola Moto Q.

What has happened is that the firmware of your phone has become corrupted. When this happens your phone will no longer finish its boot sequence.

This is a very common situation with many phones: in fact, much of what I do here at Fixya is explain how people can fix their MP3 players, GPS and phones by reflashing the firmware.

The good news is that if you take your phone into your carrier's store, they can reflash it for you right there (if they have a competent tech handy.)

If you are comfortable with computers etc, you can also do it yourself. Your computer will communicate with and fix your phone, even though it doesn't seem to recognize it right now - I've seen this many many times.

My only warning for you is that if you are going to flash your phone yourself, you need to get the correct firmware from motorola's site for your carrier. I just downloaded the Verizon firmware as an example - Motorola's website has about ten different carrier firmwares for their MotoQ phone.

I hope that helps.

I have a Moto Q on the PagePlus Cellular / Verizon network. After calls the unit goes blank. This happens several times a month. Sometimes several in a day. I remove the battery and immediately replace it...

Keys on my palm centro won't work!


Some phones have a keypad lock so you dont accidentally hit the buttons if its in your pocket or something. Maybe try to go to settings and see if there is anything like that.

Ultronic lcd clock with a stylus tucked in back of clock


This thing set under my bed, lifeless til I was looking for something else and decided it was time to get this clock working!

(Use the stylus pen for best results) After putting in two fresh batteries (or hit the reset button if your batteries are fresh). This will reset the clock and the 'clock' icon in the upper lefthand corner will be blinking. Now press and hold the display area where the hour of the day is displayed. The entire time will start blinking. Now start tapping on the blinking hours to increment the clock slowly to the correct hours (it will cycle all the way thru military time and regular time, so choose what you desire). Press and hold with the stylus to increment quickly. Do the same with the minutes, that are blinking too. When time is correct, tap the 'clock' icon once. The 'clock' icon will still blink, which I believe is correct operation.

To set the date, tap on 3rd icon down from the top left (it looks like a little calendar). This will put you into the date section of the clock (if you do nothing, it will cycle back to the clock, after ten seconds, as a default). Before it cycles back to the clock, press and hold with the stylus pen right below the word 'DATE', until the the entire displayed date starts blinking. Tap the first two digits of the year to go down in years and tap the right two numbers of the year to go up in years. Tap on the month number to increment; do the same with the date number. When all date entries are correct, either tap the 'calendar' icon, or let the clock sit for ten seconds: it will cycle back to the clock.

I guess you can set the alarm in a similar method.

Hopes this helps!
